County, NY, Westchester AGO Concert September 23, 2018
A good crowd of organ
devotees, coming from as far away as Fairfield CT, were present
at Mt. Kisco Presbyterian Church to hear 2 young rising stars in
the organ world perform works by Guilmant, Bach, Weaver, and Reger.
Chris Yuejian Lee and Daniel Ficarri performed on the 2008 von Beckerath
organ. Terry Flanagan, Music Director, hosted the event. Chris is
the organ scholar at Hitchcock Presbyterian Church, Scarsdale, NY.
He regaled us with a piece by his teacher, John Weaver, that showed
off the von Beckerath’s great versatility and depth of sound.
Daniel is the organ scholar at The Church of St. Paul the Apostle,
NYC. He studied with Paul Jacobs at the Juillard School, and his
Bach piece was played effortlessly and made the church ring to great
effect. Afterward all marveled at the workings of the organ and
were treated by member Frank Miller to a repast that surpassed royalty!
